I love castel plage since the nineties when I used to spend my holidays in Nice.
I remember at the reception a lovely woman up-dressed with big earrings smiling to you (she changed a pair every day!) She wasn't there this time. :(
Ok times are changing,perhaps is not now like it used to be even if prices are still not cheap but great atmosphere,beautiful and relaxed people,really gay-friendly and above all that insuperable french "bohémien" touch that I really like and make me feel confortable in a place.
The position make you be kissed by sun 'till late afternoon and liberty style metal structure is really pleasing.
Good staff casting! Service is fine and fortunately not too formal.
Hadn't eat this time but wines and snacks were good and well served.
Recommended when you are on a good budget day and fed up to stay on the stone of the public beach.

The Castel is at the end of the Promenade, on what used to be called the "Miejou quay" (noon quay) and is the Quai des Etats Unis since 1917, at the bottom of the Castle hill; the restaurant is excellent and is the meeting place for NIce

Went there as got a hint from a gay friend that they have a good service and good food. Took an afternoon shift and came around 2.20pm so, 20 minutes after the shift had started. Was pointed a place next to fence to public beach on the right, which also was full of people. Stayed for four hours or so, and tried to get waitresses attention multiple times, some of them even nodded like realizing that we wanted something, but no one never came to ask detailed order. Realized that this side of the beach was full of straight couples, and quite many seem to have same issues with the service. Do they only give service for gay people located to other side of the beach area and if so, why even bother to keep the beach open for others.
